I write different server URL in my /etc/apt/sources.list file

eg:

deb http://debian.ustc.edu.cn/ubuntu/ quantal main multiverse restricted universe
deb http://debian.ustc.edu.cn/ubuntu/ quantal-backports main multiverse restricted universe
deb http://debian.ustc.edu.cn/ubuntu/ quantal-proposed main multiverse restricted universe
deb http://debian.ustc.edu.cn/ubuntu/ quantal-security main multiverse restricted universe
deb http://debian.ustc.edu.cn/ubuntu/ quantal-updates main multiverse restricted universe
deb-src http://debian.ustc.edu.cn/ubuntu/ quantal main multiverse restricted universe
deb-src http://debian.ustc.edu.cn/ubuntu/ quantal-backports main multiverse restricted universe
deb-src http://debian.ustc.edu.cn/ubuntu/ quantal-proposed main multiverse restricted universe
deb-src http://debian.ustc.edu.cn/ubuntu/ quantal-security main multiverse restricted universe
deb-src http://debian.ustc.edu.cn/ubuntu/ quantal-updates main multiverse restricted universe


deb http://mirrors.163.com/ubuntu/ quantal main restricted universe multiverse
deb http://mirrors.163.com/ubuntu/ quantal-security main restricted universe multiverse
deb http://mirrors.163.com/ubuntu/ quantal-updates main restricted universe multiverse
deb http://mirrors.163.com/ubuntu/ quantal-proposed main restricted universe multiverse
deb http://mirrors.163.com/ubuntu/ quantal-backports main restricted universe multiverse
deb-src http://mirrors.163.com/ubuntu/ quantal main restricted universe multiverse
deb-src http://mirrors.163.com/ubuntu/ quantal-security main restricted universe multiverse
deb-src http://mirrors.163.com/ubuntu/ quantal-updates main restricted universe multiverse
deb-src http://mirrors.163.com/ubuntu/ quantal-proposed main restricted universe multiverse
deb-src http://mirrors.163.com/ubuntu/ quantal-backports main restricted universe multiverse

then, when i use apt-get install xx to install software, does apt automatically choice the one with most speed source list?
